Study each of the following cases carefully. Briefly state the principle of law and your decision.
Sexual Harassment Gentry, an employee of Export Packaging Company, reported directly to Broughton. Gentry alleged among other things that, during a period of approximately four months, Broughton subjected her to “40 hugs, 15 shoulder rubs, [and] a kiss on her cheek.” She also alleged that she was referred to as a “sex-retary.” Gentry sued her employer for sexual harassment, and the jury awarded her both compensatory and punitive damages. The company appealed. Will the company be successful in setting aside the award for damages? [ Gentry v. Export Packaging Company, 238 F.3d 842 (Texas)]
